WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Three masters of minimalism, choreographer Lucinda Childs, composer Philip Glass, and conceptual artist Sol LeWitt, collaborated to construct this seminal work of dance--one of the purest examples of interdisciplinary art-making ever created. An exploration of musical movement, rhythm, and harmony, Dance is a bold statement on the very nature of movement. A vast, transparent scrim stretches across the front of the stage. Projected upon it is LeWitt's 35mm black-and-white film of the original dancers from 1979, including Childs, performing Dance on a white grid floor that seems to float in darkness. Concurrently, the work is performed on stage by a new cast and in time with the film's close-ups, diagonal views, overhead shots, split screens, and freeze-frames. Surrounding this visual experience is Phillip Glass's score, a masterwork of modular patterns that form the perfect counterpoint to Childs's choreography.
